in the u.s. senate was 27-6. in the house, it was 136-35. four out of five republican members in both houses for civil rights. for the voting rights to follow, the republican vote in the senate was 30-2. overwhelming in all cases. i'm watching this debate over the voting rights act and i'm struck with the reality that the reason for today is the republican party. not the party of the 1960s. but the one that's backed voter suppression efforts in dozens of states and keeps on doing. every time a state passes another bill making it harder to vote, cutting down on voter days, exz e exz tending voter id requirements, you have to wonder are they doing precisely what the voter rights act was designed to stop? >> the republican party can be proud in certain regards. certainly the backing of certain men like edward durks. the question today for this young century is whether the republican party will be as proud in the future for the positions it's taking now. that's "hardball" for now.

's awards show is it tells you so much and in so many different ways us about. one thing it told me is america is hungry for a winner. movies are always about today. kit be a period piece, but it's really about the times we're living in. look at "mash" from the old days. it was supposed to be about korea. we know it was about vietnam. and all the "sandals" movies about the biblical times. they were really about jim crow. and lincoln is about how politics practiced for a good purpose can get something done, even today, something historic and glorious. and by the way, put me down as a seth mcfarland fan. there are things i would have cut from the lines. but this guy reminds me of the good old days of bob hope and johnny carson. he brought back show business in the academy wards and set up shirley bassy singing "gold finger" 50 years later and that great production number from "les mis" and my friend barbara streisand. finally, you know i like jennifer lawrence winning for best actress. she really s and that's "hard ball" for now.

that if this sequestration goes through on friday, it looks like it will, it's the beginning of an era of us astart austerit austerity in states. remember, this is such an abstract concept when put in place at the debt ceiling talks. it was literally put in place to force political figures to come to the table, to come to compromise and to make decision that's are benefit for the future of this country going forward. that has failed to happen and we have to look at the obstructionism that we see on the part of the republicans and at the end of the day, we have to really think is this the direction we want to go in as a nation? the cuts here are just too sloppily placed. there is nothing strategic about the sequester. that's why you see so much pain and different communities and different states. that's why you see governor's coming against it. the challenges here are many. and we need all hands on deck. >> jarrett, when you look at me, we're talking about real people. forget republicans, democrats, forget the beltway. real people are going to have to deal with this. let's go out into america. let's go into

here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in don flikt. regular use of birth control is one that works. the other goal is to protect religions from doing something they believe is morally wrong. my own belief is that the solution the obama administration reached here is win/win. i say this to someone who believes in the clinton case, that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. getting birth control to women for free will keep it rare. to keep the catholic church out of that transaction keeps it closer to the goal. this is what good, smart, progressive, morally upright politics is all about. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us.
